A former colonel in the Iranian Air Force yearns to restore his family's dignity. A recovering alcoholic and addict down on her luck struggles to hold on to the one thing she has left. And her lover, a married cop, is driven to extremes to win her love. In this masterpiece of American realism and Shakespearean consequence, Andre Dubus III's unforgettable characters people with ordinary flaws, looking for a small piece of ground to stand on careen toward inevitable conflict, their tragedy painting a shockingly true picture of the country we live in today."
